FIRST ENCOUNTERS WITH BRANDY MELVILLE







/      where comfort dressers come to die










if you've been tuning into my ig then you may have seen my recent snaps from a venture to london, where i spent the day at the shard and wandering around both camden's market stalls and covent garden - all new territories and each with completely different vibes. with the white stone walls and elusive stores though, its little surprise that covent garden has my admittedly consumer heart. there i swatched in charlotte tilbury, fussed over rose gold ray-bans and eagerly sought out the brandy melville store at 9-15 neal street, itching to walk away with some cosy, california-girl attire under my arm.

the brand is known for its soft af fabrics, so naturally i had to walk away with the cosiest options available. for those who love loungewear, the rosa sweatpants are the holy grail. grey speckled and cute as a button, they work for a bed day or styled to a sport-luxe brief for off-duty days - whatever your weekend asks of you.
the ollie sweater is a cotton blend cable knit, mine in a feminine blush tone. i confess, its a bitch when it pulls and pink isn't what i'd usually hand select for myself, but when tucked into paper bag trousers and paired with ankle boots, i'm swayed, swooned, the lot and then some.







verdict: i've worn the jumper for four consecutive days without shame and the lounge pants feel like a cloud so brandy melville, i'll see you again. especially now since i've got shoppers regret over your soho t-shirt...
